NEW ORLEANS – An Orleans Parish woman claims that her insurance provider did not fully refund her for damages.
Sheryl L. McBride filed a suit against Southern Fidelity Insurance Co. in the Orleans Parish Civil District Court.

She alleges she was forced to move from her home in September 2015 and has not been able to return.
The defendant is accused of breach of contract.
The plaintiff is seeking an unspecified amount in damages. She is representing herself.
The case has been assigned to Division N Judge Ethel S. Julien.
